is you can't make crazy substitutions, you can only sub qb/k/p for qb, hb/fb for hb, hb/fb/te for fb, te/wr/fb/hb for wr, ect... I always liked puttin my DBs in at WR in franchise mode to make em better...oh well

i always wanted to be able to sub my HB in for my QB so i could hike it directly to my HB and run a QB (HB) sneak (run)... Which would essentially give you an extra blocker if you take out the QB postion ... but the game wont let you sub your HB for your QB ... so i guess the only alternative is to get a fast, quick QB who is like a HB (mike vick for instance) and use him for it. the falcons actually do this i believe ... they dont actually have a formation designed specifically for it ... but i believe they run a QB sneak in one of their power running formations

I totally agree...I wanted to put some offensive lineman down on my d-line in a custom goal line set and it wouldn't let me do it... Sad

A lot of teams only carry 8 DBs total. Because Quarters uses 7 DBs, most teams are only two DB injuries away from having to make a substitution. A WR is likely, but sometimes you get stuck with a LB playing FS.

Ugh, I had a game blown because of this a few years back when I used Speed Quarter as my primary defense. I hadn't realized that a substitution was made, and I think I got torched for 2 deep TDs because my LB playing FS couldn't keep up on the deep routes Mad

I just played some NCAA 2005 last night and played a couple games with my Dukies...anyways, I moved the starting running back to QB and two tackles to tight end...I ended up running the ball for 400 yards apiece against Navy and UConn on All-American (equivilent of All-Pro on Madden)...I know those aren't amazing teams, but c'mon, I was Duke.

^^ not sure if it will help now but even in NCAA 06 u can pretty much do anything u want (or that would make half-sense)

After i audabled from a punt to a playaction pass the other day (got the first down catch with my ROLB lol) the next play i call out of the shotgun i have my backup DE at 1st WR and my lb'er that caught the pass in at TE, i think its just a glitch.

There's a glitch in 05 that puts in DEs at QB for one formation. If you fix it, it puts a QB at DE for one formation. I decided to put in my QB at DE, and Dante Culpepper was defensive player of the week.
